Wedding Photography

Make a complete list of wedding photos


If there is one occasion that everyone wants to celebrate with wedding photos, it is their wedding. It is an occasion that every one wants a degree of professionalism, and many people want to ensure quality.

wedding photography imageBefore the wedding has starts, you should have in writing how many wedding photos need taking, and be aware of the cost of processing, and the cost of the albums. Ask for an estimate of how long the session will take and what the wedding photography hourly rate is.

Pay special attention to specific wedding photography requests of your families. For example, you may have a long lost cousin coming, and you particularly want separatewedding photos of them. It is important you can talk with each family well before the ceremony and establish exactly what they require. Remember that a lot of guests also recording the ceremony, or aspects of it, so to avoid unnecessary competition, get as many of the wedding photographs done before the ceremony as you can. Be aware that some venues restrict the places that you can photograph from, so make sure that you are fully aware of this before the ceremony. It is important that you pick the correct vantage point before the ceremony. 

Before the ceremony make a complete list of all the wedding photos that will be required.
Here is a fairly standard suggested list for your wedding photography.

Your wedding photos are very importantNot every wedding is the same and want every type of wedding photograph. However, it will be a good idea to write down a list of what you require from the wedding photographer. Also you must remember that it is a sentimental day for many people, and there will be opportunities for unusual photographs.

The wedding photographer should keep a watchful eye out for the child guests. At some point the possibility of an unusual wedding photo is going to present itself. Weddings are all fairly standard, but most people like to add a reminder of poignancy or humour. It's not a bad idea to invite the wedding photographer to the wedding rehearsal, as he or she can meet the guests, and be more comfortable with them on the big day.
